Today the Scottish Government and UKTI, the government department responsible for international trade, have announced they will be jointly organising a major business conference that will take place in the run up to the games.
Senior business and political leaders will address delegates at the conference, which will have a focus on the challenges facing business in the future and showcasing Britain’s key industries.
Nick Baird, chief executive of UKTI, said: “The Commonwealth Games, and in particular the Commonwealth Games Business Conference, will look to build on the London 2012 Olympic legacy and position the UK as a global leader, in order to generate long term economic benefit for UK businesses and the UK economy.
“It will also encourage UK companies, individuals and entrepreneurs to showcase their expertise using this unique event as a platform.
Commonwealth games minister Shona Robison said: “The Commonwealth Games Business Conference will be a chance to get to know business leaders from across the Commonwealth and it will be just one of the many ways we are working to generate long-term benefits for Scotland and leave a lasting business legacy from the Games.
